Personal Cloud Storage and Synchronization

Personal cloud services have prompted a fundamental shift in the way consumers and employees use computing devices. These services act as a cost-efficient and user-friendly medium for storing documents and content remotely, and by doing so they also facilitate more effective sharing and collaboration between different users. In this study, ABI Research first discusses the most significant market drivers and inhibitors for personal cloud storage. The second section of the study, meanwhile, covers the relevant market forecasts. These include the forecasts on the following metrics: active accounts and service penetration by geographic region, active premium accounts worldwide, total volume of data stored in the personal clouds, and average volume of data per active account. Finally, the report elaborates on the market issues that ABI Research considers to be the most important for the future evolution of the personal cloud.
